101 Dalmations

I watched Disney's 1961 101 Dalmations this afternoon and my suspicions were confirmed; this movie is less for children and more for artists and animators to drool over. It's a celebration of the 1950s magazine and book illustration aesthetic. The colors are striking as well; they go from bright rainbow hues to sad grays to angry reds as the mood of the movie changes. Exquisite stuff! I've posted a bunch of stills below.
